I've been in the beta for sometime now and played around with it even before I was in the Beta. Here are my near final thoughts on what you all can expect when Home drops in a few weeks. (in beta form)
Silogon wrote this, lol Some of the complaints he has seems like he doesn't have any friends that are into it as much as him. This will change when everyone has it :)
But I never use my Silgon account for Beta's like Resistance, Home and so forth and so on. No one knows my real account and I'm heavily populated with friends on the account I use and am actually well liked and received inside the community. Now, granted, if they knew I was Silogon, yeah... I'd probably have a problem. They don't though and home is still a bit to be desired. That is the point Ii am trying to make, and I also make it clear that things can change and probably will cause it is a "BETA" right now. I'm not being unfair or biased here.
I've met lots of new people in Home that are actually pretty cool. The quick loads between all the spaces gets to be a little annoying they need to use the streaming tech in Home. The merchandise selection isn't a valid complaint because it's a beta with limited demo like features. They need to do the following to make sure it's a success. 1. Make sure Home gets exclusive first run features and content before any other form of media receives them updated in realtime daily. Any 1st or 2nd party Sony announcement should be introduced in Home first driving users to check in daily for up to the minute info. I liked the virtual TGS show floor. 2. Make sure the price for the premium content is cheap and high quality. If they charge $1.99 for a virtual television set Home will be gone faster than a fart in a dust storm. Charge $.19 cents for a hi def Bravia and people will go ahead and buy the couch and the area rug as well.
heres my review on silogons article: FAILSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. who agrees?
wow, silogon...........i didnt know you had 6 accounts bro.
I look forward to trying it myself. I use to use THERE alot but it does get boring.
written by siligon, the guy who's ignored by 150 users and is proud of it
It doesn't have to get approved; that's fine. It is a very informative piece, though and it does tell you exactly what to expect from Home when you all get it. Hide the truth all you want. Mark it and move on, but I won't be in the minority for long. you all will be playing inside home, and going through exactly, word for word, what I've laid out here. This isn't a jab or a bias article. It's the truth.
^^ dude, Im in the beta
I believe him (Silogon)
being ignored by 150 fanbois isn't a bad thing, just means less people trolling your posts ;)
It was very informative.
...and I disagree with Siligon. Home might not be what you expected, but it is surely better that LIVE. If not, why do you think MS is frenzying with their own NXE concept? In regards to the stores, you should know better Siligon, your in the Beta. You can see items like uni-cycles and instruments will be available and the Home spaces will be full of people skatebording, rollerblading and other activities. Apartments will have TV sets that will allow you to watch a movie in real-time with a friend that might live in a different state than you. The whole concept is revolutionary. If you can't see that, you shouldn't write articles that are not just uninsightful but are also misleading.
Silogon strikes again!
damn, the 360 fanboys are really working your bubbles....here have one : )
I knoooow. :( They were swiped before I knew it. .w.
i need some assistance in that department, seems when im not around the bubbl e thieves strike
i just got my beta code today, and im just waiting for the network to come back up so i can download it
i thought the beta was over?
holy crap their STILL sending beta keys?
I think Sony should scrap Home and improve on the cross media bar. People are going to get tired of Home quickly.
Whilst to some folk your post will sound like you want Sony to give up their biggest amazing thing and copy the 'NXE' i think you do have a valid point about the boredom factor. How many people are in second life right now ? probably a couple of thousand from millions of registered. If home genuinely offers something new and extra and nice they'll need to mod the firmware to boot people up into it, and have the xmb as the over-guide. Otherwise it'll get ignored alot - like if the new xbox dash was a 'second skin' and you booted into the new guide, most people wouldn't know nor care about the new dash. It would be nice to see a genuine poll about how many people use the dash/xmb instead of just putting a disc in and playing games (mainstream).
Let's see what you said... " it does tell you exactly what to expect from Home when you all get it" and then "It's the truth" Now, my question is, being in the beta, how the hell would any of us know what it's going to be like when released? How can there be any "truth" in speculation? Because that's all you're doing about the state of home at release time....speculating.
"That is a big problem. You want to interact with others but they just don't want to. They'd rather run around and act like idiots than to do something productive inside it; like talk about what needs to change and what can stay for instance." No they just aren't haters while everyone else is running around having fun (i guess like "idiots") you want to Hate
Some people really need their approval privileges removed.
